    Yankees Receive Sandwich Round Draft Pick Compensation

    "Before Swisher became a free agent, the Yankees assured themselves that they would get draft-pick compensation by making him a one-year $13.3 million qualifying offer. The average annual value of Swisher's deal with the Indians is $14 million." Paul Hoynes, The Plain Dealer
    This is a 2nd Round Draft Pick. Wonder who they will pursue...

    2012 - Austin Aune CF & Peter O'Brien C
    2011 - Sam Stafford (DNS) LHP
    2010 - Angelo Gumbs SS/OF
    2009 - JR Murphy C

    An overview of 2nd round picks since the Yankees last championship.

    Incorrect. The Yankees get a sandwich pick between the first and second rounds but Cleveland loses its second round pick.

    Shame it was Cleveland. I'd rather him have went to a team without a protected 1st RD pick. It would have shrunk the 1st RD, and thus gotten us closer to a pick. Or do the sandwich picks go by record of teams signing players offered qualifying contracts?

    Not sure how the sandwich picks line up. But yes, any team out of the top ten signing one of these guys has their pick disappear, which helps the sandwich picks move up.

    Nice thing is we will have three picks in a bunch between 28-35.

    Knowing our fortune, the picks won't amount to anything.

    This year's draft is supposed to be very light from what I've heard. So of course we get plenty of picks when the pickings are so slim

    Then we shouldnt be concerned with early picks. Which early pick is the one we look to as a great pick?

    Imagine if teams could sell a first round pick.
